Opened one hour before drinking. Just on the edge between clear and opaque, dark garnet color with a light purplish rim. Very aromatic with ripe dark fruit, damp earth and smoky aromas. Juicy fruit sweet, zealous, medium to full body and a 150-grip texture. Abundant tart cherry, blackberry, current and cardamon flavors. Brisk acidity, leathery tannins that really grow through a vehement peppery spice and sweet cardamon tasting finish. Soft and juicy through mid-palate, then a slight coarseness through the end. Unusual varietal that was both alluring and savory.
